Bainbridge supports Wounded Warriors | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

On Saturday, April 13, Bainbridge Islanders and others were “front and center” in supporting the National Wounded Warriors Project. Our American Legion Post hosted our first-ever model train show at the post hall. The price of admission was merely a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project.

The turnout was just super, and as a result, after expenses, we were able to send a check for $550.73 to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Colin Hyde Post No. 172 wishes to sincerely thank all those who attended for their support and encouragement of our first train show. In fact, the response was so great we are planning an even better and bigger Train Show II in the future.

Special thanks goes to Past Commander Ron Luke, who spearheaded the event, and to Dick Daugherty, our resident model train expert, and to all the Legionnaires and volunteers who helped in making the event a success.
